I was just accepted in to my local electrical union and I do not want to live where I'm at now for the rest of my life. After I finish my 5 years, can I switch to another Local?
I believe you can do it but if you are going to move go where the money is and that is North Dakota right now...:thumbsup:I'm sure numerous people have already answered this question in different threads but I am new to this website and have not found any sufficient answers to my question yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Which ever course you choose, best of health, wealth and happiness and treat EVERYONE like you wish to be treated and you should do well.You can do two things.
First, you can travel to other locals and work in those territories via book 2. Book 1 is the local members and Book 2 is our traveling brothers and sisters. Your benefits ( pension and health/welfare ) remain with your home local. This is what a lot of us do.
Second, you can attempt to transfer your book into another local. Many locals discourage this - especially the harder to get into northeast and california locals as they feel like it is a way of circumventing their vetting process.
